Unlike all the many cases popping every other day and more and more public figures testing positive for COVID-19, this one has a difference. While there has been an official confirmation from the concerned person or someone related to them about it, this one comes from an organization.
A few reports suggested that actor Alia Bhatt has tested positive for COVID-19 and ETimes got in touch with FWICE, (Federation of Western India Cine Employees), General Secretary Ashok Dubey, who confirmed saying, “Yes, I have got to know that Alia has tested positive for COVID”.
He further explained how he got this information saying, “A technician from 'Gangubai Kathiawadi' unit called me a little before 9pm to say that they have packed up for the day. When I asked him why, he said that a lead actor of the film had tested positive. Then, I called Chetan who heads the production responsibilities of Sanjay Leela Bhansali Productions who informed me that it was Alia who had been infected."
He added, “Later, I spoke to Sonu Srivastav, who is the Dance Co-ordinator on 'Gangubai Kathiawadi'. He too confirmed that Alia had tested positive."
It is said that Bhatt immediately left the set when her reports came in at 8:45 pm. We have also heard that the shoot of Gangubai Kathiawadi will now not take place for the next 10 days at least.
We wish the actor a speedy recovery.
